People say that teenagers don't know what love is, what loss is, what real pain is. I disagree....I think that a child can suffer just as much in ten years as an adult has in thirty. And love....It's not true for all young couples, but the love between two sixteen-year-olds, rare as it is, can be just as real as the love between two married for twenty years.

Psssst, although it may not show, I'm related to Edgar Allen Poe. That rhymed.
Like I Knew It Would
Everything is happening
At a pace unlike my own
My response is not ideal,
Though fifteen years I've grown.
Say not what I am capable of,
Nor what I dare to do,
But focus on my prevailing flaws,
To weakness must I stay true.
